Early Cancer Detection can save lives
Our Molechecks system is the world’s most thorough skin cancer and melanoma screening program.
We have been leading the way in comprehensive skin screenings since 1997
At Molechecks Australia our highly trained Doctors and Melanographers use the latest technologies to significantly increase early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of melanoma and other skin cancers.
Concerned about a mole?
We have diagnosed over 550 melanomas in recent years – most of them at a very early stage.
If you have a mole which is
Then you need this to be assessed as soon as possible. Please book in at your earliest convenience for a screening appointment.
If you notice a mole – get it checked.
We have been leading the way since 1997. We have an outstanding melanoma diagnosis rate with over 550 melanomas diagnosed in recent years – most of them at a very early stage.
Thousands of basal and squamous cell cancers (more common than melanoma) have also been diagnosed.
Our highly trained Doctors and Melanographers use:
Whole Body Photography
About half of all melanomas emerge on plain skin. This can be detected if we have a photo record of the skin for future comparison.
Dermoscopy is the technology that lets us look through the skin to its structures, allowing us to clearly diagnose moles.
You can see what is not possible to see with the naked eye. Using dermoscopy the diagnosis rate for melanomas increases from 40-50% to over 90%.
Every Mole/Mark Assesed
A dermoscope is used to assess every mole on the body. Not all early melanomas are visible to the naked eye. Some melanomas we have diagnosed have been as small as 1mm in diameter. In most cases, our patients were not aware of the melanoma on their body.
All moles with abnormal structures are saved. Healthy moles do not change or change in predictable ways. Melanomas change and rewrite their structure. Serial monitoring enables early detection of melanomas. Takes diagnosis to over 95%
Molemax® technology uses polarised light to create a 30X magnified image on a computer screen. In many cases dermoscopy can require messy oils or gels to be placed on the skin to achieve an enhanced image. Molemax® dermoscopy imaging does not require oil. This means every mole can be assessed without discomfort to the patient.
